Our group of 4 chose this hotel because of location to Times Square, theater district, and Hells kitchen area and we were so pleased with our selection. STAFF WAS WONDERFUL and tended to all of our needs. Rooms were very clean and functional. We stayed 6 days and the morning breakfast that was included was amazing with lots of options and hot food choices. Definitely would highly recommend this hotel.

With all else equal, choose this hotel for its modern amenities, quality of staff, and its over-the-top buffet breakfast. One tip: clarify directions on operation of the elevators with the key card. Thanks to Bellperson Julian and his JWG recommendation.
